When I looked for flourless chocolate cake recipes, I found two that caught my eye. Since I couldn’t decide which one would be better, I broke down and made them both. Sorry I’m not sorry.
I made this cake earlier in the week. Last night, I made this recipe. They both use the same basic ingredients, but this one uses some fluffy egg whites, so it has a more spongy, light texture, with a thin, crispy outer layer. Who could say no to that?
One of my dear friends is celebrating Passover this week, and asked if I could make a chocolate torte. I have never made a chocolate torte, but I was excited to try! I was a little bit nervous about putting so many eggs, and no flour, into the batter (and I accidentally cracked the cake down the middle flipping it out of the pan). But it turned out really good! Kinda like a brownie cake!
It was eaten very quickly, so this was the only terrible picture I took of it. We ate ours cold, in really thin slices, with a little fresh whipped cream and strawberries.
And I imagine that if I would have taken food styling classes and made this in daylight, the picture would look something like this:
You can find the recipe here. Try it!
A couple days ago, I tried making these oatmeal cookie pie things. The cookie part of them turned out pretty awesome despite the weird ingredients, but I could not make the filling part work. I tried twice and used up all the milk. My guess is I didn’t beat the butter and sugar enough, but I whipped it up for like 10 minutes. I am still kinda bitter about it, but whatever.
But the universe made it up to me yesterday and gave me these doughnuts. My guy has been working awfully late this week, and I knew he would enjoy a baked espresso glazed doughnut. I switched it up a little bit, and made baked doughnut “holes” (aka I used a whoopie pie pan to make baby doughnuts). I also used gold sprinkles on top since I didn’t have any chocolate ones. The guy loved them, as did all the coworkers who enjoyed them this morning.
